Really yummy, creative small dishes with lots of options. Quick, friendly service and fun vibe. Bartender puts on quite a show shaking those shaken drinks! 🍸

This was one of the best restaurants I've ever been to, of all time! It has been a couple years but I still remember how delicious the food was, how kind the staff treated us, and how much I would love to come back!

Lovely spot! Food was amazing, and the restaurant was very nice. Food came out hot and quick. Kaylee was in charge of our table and took great care of us! Definitely a must-go, and will absolutely be coming back next time we're on the island. I recommend the Teriyaki Beef Tenderloin.

Made reservations for my birthday. Love Spain and look for tapas restaurants when traveling. We had Cava and several dishes. Everything was good, including the pan tomate, which we were really looking forward to eating. I had the mahi mahi, catch of the day and the sauce was VERY salty. I have a high tolerance to salt, but this was excessive. Just scraped some sauce off and it was ok. The fish was cooked perfectly medium, which made me happy. A lot of places overcook fish. The only negative was that the lady who opened our bottles of Cava popped the cork(twice...we had 2 bottles), which lets the bubbles out and it goes flat much faster. This is a very nice restaurant, so I would expect the staff to be trained how to open sparkling wine without popping the cork. Would definitely go back again and still highly recommend Bon Tapa.

Best tapas we´ve ever eaten. Very nice and friendly crew. Drinks were excellent and the food very delicious. The price is totally fine for the quality you´ll get! Highly recommended to try during your stay. We went two times in five days there.

Great place to have delicious tapas. And their cocktails are also very good. Would definitely recommend!

The food was good. My wife and I shared the tasting menu. The service also decent. Because the restaurant is an open concept people were allowed to smoke and I haven't been in an environment that allowed smoking in years and that was off-putting.

This was our favorite place to eat from our trip to Bonaire. They have a great ambiance with friendly and helpful staff. Tapas are always fun with friends being able to try a lot of different things and everything we tried here was delicious including the pitchers of mojitos and sangria. If you aren't familiar with tapas plan on being here for longer than a normal American meal and definitely make a reservation if coming later in the evening

This is the best meal we had in a week on Bonaire. The food and service were excellent. As we paid our check, we made a reservation to return the following night. The pork loin was spectacular, but all the food was really, really good. Highly recommend.

Drinks and service 5⭐️. But food only 2⭐️. The ceviche was a ridiculously small portion- even for tapas. It looked more like very small leftover fish pieces, no Leche de Tigre, but Salat and one small slice of potatoe. This is not a Peruvian ceviche. The quesadillas needed more filling and cheese and were aswell very small for tapas. The patatas Bravas and aioli were tasty. Value for the money was not good. To sum up come for cocktails and some fries.

Very tasty tapas with great varieties (many vegetarian options which you usually don't find too many of) and super friendly staff!

Service here was some of the best we received on the island. We were seated promptly, and the servers were very attentive. Was nice that we were able to try so many different options, all of which were really good. Goat cheese w/ bacon and the flat iron peppercorn slices were highlights. Will def be back. Wish we had found this place sooner on our two week trip.

Good idea to make reservations as this place can get busy. If you're feeling a bit adventurous, get the 'Dare to Share' tapas for 2. The chef prepares 10 different tapas, brought out all together on a platter. They were all very good. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and very attentive. Definitely a do not miss here in Bonaire.

Unless you go early, you'll need reservations. Interior is dark and rich looking. Very complete drink menu and a lot of tapas to choose from. Service was good. Food comes out as it is ready.

It was a second place choice for us that night, but it exceeded the initial plan by a full atmosphere. Great staff, upbeat vibe, carefully crafted cocktails, and truly excellent food across a wide range of flavors and forms.

I love this restaurant! The food is amazing and so are the employees. You can order all kinds of dishes in smaller portions so that you won't get full too fast. I had a great time here with my family!!!

This place was great! Ended up going several times on my last trip to Bonaire. The food was delicious and super well priced. The bartender, Christian, was phenomemal; he is truly dedicated to his craft. Was great chatting with him and the owner! Great food, amazing drinks, good value, and phenomenal staff. Nothing but good stuff to say. Do yourself a favor and check this place out!

OverratedI had high hopes for this restaurant. However a big disappointment; my red snapper was extremely dry and hard to chew, although the relish on the top was good. And the baked vegetables I was so much looking forward to seemed to me to be fried and were swimming in oil, so much so that I couldn't even finish this small tapa. Three stars are for the excellent service, otherwise even one star would be a compliment.
